I am not complaining simply pointing out some facts. All to often programs start at no cost to the taxpayer but rarely stay that way. I would not argue Betty spent a lot of time taping what I would argue is that it was volunteer time in the way most people think of it. As for the POI he could spend his time on something other than taping if Betty didn't feel the need to have her every appearance taped and broadcast on channel 8.
Looking back to what a former mayor did, did not do, or is not doing has nothing to do with Betty unless you are simply saying we could do worse. I think the expectations of most people are a little higher.
